New Lattice Power Manager II Hercules Development Kit

by donpedro

Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (distributed by MSC Vertriebs GmbH) announced the availability of the new Power Manager II Hercules Development Kit.
The evalboard is a versatile, ready to use hardware platform for evaluating and designing with Power Manager II devices. Using the preloaded Board Digital Management design provided with the development kit, designers can test within minutes power management functions such as power supply hot swap control, redundant supply selection and payload power management. Free reference design source code is offered as download, enabling to implement these features in less than an hour.
The kit also demonstrates enhanced power management features such as closed loop margining. Provisions are included to emulate power supply monitoring, temperature monitoring, supply fault logging and reset generation.
The core of the Hercules evaluation board is the combination of a Power Manager II ispPAC-POWR1220AT8 and a MachXO LCMXO2280 PLD. The MachXO can be configured to provide digital management and interface functions such as interface to a CompactPCI backplane, LCD display, PC Host, SPI Flash, memory interface, VID decode and fault logging.
Power for the board comes from a 12 VDC wall plug supply. Power for Advanced Edition of the Hercules evaluation board can be sourced by a CompactPCI 12V backplane power supply.
